FOUR MEMBERS of the cricket team which visited Jamaica last year will accompany the Trinidad football team scheduled to arrive here on Thursday, Feby. 7 for the first tournament of its kind for Jamaica since 1939.

The Selection Committee of the Trinidad Amateur Football Association met yesterday and selected seventeen players to make the trip that will last from Feby. 6 to the end of the same month, playing nine matches in that period.

Heading the aggregation will be none other than Pryor Jones, leading fast bowler of the Trinidad cricket side and No. 1 pivot of the Colony's football side. He will captain the side that will be coming some eleven years after Trinidad's pioneer side of which he was a member. Thus Jones is the only survivor of the 1935-36 combination led by the English schoolmaster, Arthur Wilkinson.

The other three acquaintences are Gerry Gomez, Jeffrey Stollmeyer (who was captain of the cricket team) and Andy Ganteaume, dapper opening batsman and wicket-keeper.
